Army commander urges soldiers to use chemical weapons: audio recording
 

 Syrian activists have posted an audio recording for a commander in Bashar al-Assad’s army showed he was ordering his soldiers to use chemical weapons against rebels in areas affiliated to his control in Idlib and Hama provinces.

Regime army col. Mahmoud Sabha in phone call via wireless devices with his subordinate soldiers in Jiser al-Shougour and Sahl al-Ghab assured to combat any assault by rebels and to get the chemical weapons prepared to use if they forced to.

 Sabha quoted as saying,” I take full responsibility.”

Recently, activists posted photographs and videos show an improvised chlorine bombs to back up claims that Assad's forces used chemical weapons.

On April 14, rebels and the regime have blamed each other for the alleged poison gas attacks rebel-held Kfar Zeita village in the central province of Hama, 125 miles north of Damascus, according to Reuters.

A U.N. inquiry found in December that sarin gas had likely been used in the rebel-held Damascus suburb of Ghouta, where hundreds of people were killed.

The Ghouta attack sparked global outrage and a U.S. threat of military strikes, which was dropped after Assad pledged to destroy his chemical weapons.
